Welsh poet Dylan Thomas's writing shed is being sent to England as a heritage promotion as it is causing sexual hysteria among female tourists who frequently confuse the dead poet with Tom Jones.

The shed, built last month, will be taken around the UK from Friday.

Visitors can make up a new word which will be published in a Dictionary of Dylan, in honour of his love of words.

The original shed sits above the Boathouse in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire, where Thomas lived for four years before he died in 1953.

Creators of the replica shed have paid close attention to even the smallest detail, including curled-up pictures on the walls.

Stops on the tour include the Will Hay Festival, the Royle Family Welsh Show and the Mrs. Brown National Eisteddfod.

The shed had views over the Taf estuary and Gower and the first poem Thomas wrote in it was Over Sir John's Hill, in which he described the view.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
